Very laid back environment
Handing customer service calls (Former Employee) –  Roswell, GAMay 14, 2018
Worked states from the south, mid and east coast and west coast. I got to interact with drivers all over the country. The hardest part of the job was making sure that the drivers got to their destination.

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXMay 8, 2018
The job is pretty easy but not guaranteed hours. It's pretty much flexible but the only thing is that you are not guaranteed the hours and it's first come first serve basis.

Community Manager (Former Employee) –  Menlo Park, CAApril 30, 2018
Beware: many people are leaving this company or trying to leave. Half of executive staff does not belong up there - no management skills. Poor culture

Independent Contractor (Current Employee) –  Menlo Park, CAApril 3, 2018
Deliv is a great place to work if you enjoy being your own boss. You can work up to 20+ hours in a week. You travel using your own vehicle. Very time sensitive.
Pros
Set your own hours
Cons
Wear and tear using your own vehicle

Worth it for some extra cash
Driver (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 22, 2018
It is a fairly straightforward experience, and pretty much what you would expect. I did it years ago, and it may possibly be different now, but it was hard to get hours / work.

Like other driving gigs, you'll pick up bagged items from a set location and deliver them to the customer within a time certain time frame. Work varies, but the job is easy to do.

Great temp job
Courier Driver (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 30, 2018
Great for a temporary job that is flexible towards whatever kind of schedule you have. No benefits. They don't take off taxes in your paycheck so you will have to pay back a huge amount during tax season.
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
no benefits

Drive
Driver (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJanuary 23, 2018
With this job, you'll drive around the city picking up packages and sometimes cakes from shopping malls or small stores. Deliver them to the houses with your app navigating you the whole time.
Pros
Higher pay
Cons
requires your own vehicle

Good concept with opportunity to improve
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 17, 2018
I've been with Deliv since 2014. I enjoy being able to choose my hours and drive from different commercial locations delivering packages. I met interesting people and got very familiar with the city and metro area. I wish the company would give more hours as they only allow you to work an average of 16 to 18 hours a week. This group of serial Silicon Valley entrepreneurs needs to familiarize itself with the city of Houston and its traffic challenges because there was lots of wasted time and energy that was unnecessary. You commit to certain amount of hours and they push you to go passed your committed hours. When you have other responsibilities and can't continue passed the hours you singed up for, they retaliate against you. During the holidays. they will push you to go all day late into the night and if you don't, they get your hours taken away.
Pros
Flexible hours with independent culture
Cons
Not enough hours and many communication issues with accounts

Very relaxing
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 30, 2017
Working at deliv is a real relaxing job. You're basically your own boss but a lot of work is being giving to you but you are to yourself. Warning most of the time the bags are heavy around 50 pounds maybe thats the max other then job no negatives about the job.

Not too bad
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn/Queens NYNovember 13, 2017
I just started this last week and I only got about 5-6 hours for one day throughout that week . This week I only got about 16-18 hours of delivery which isn’t too bad . My only wish is to get a solid 30-40 hours a week instead of being on waitlist or being capped to take available hours since I’ve already hit my limit for the week . This company is really smooth and I’m hoping to work full time with them as a deliv driver. Traffic is horrible between queens and Brooklyn sometimes but I can’t complain . I get about 1-2 delivers where customers don’t pick up so I have to return to the retailer which is an hassle sometimes because it takes more time and parking is really terrible at some places . So beware of parking !
Pros
Great pay, good customer service, be your own boss when it comes to scheduling
Cons
No health insurance or any

Deliv is an Awesome place to earn quick cash
Transporter Independent Contractor (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaNovember 11, 2017
Deliv is a wonderful company to work with. You post hours that you are willing to work and you drive your own vehicle at a very generous mileage compensation plus an hourly rate...
The work is very easy for the pay, and support staff are AWESOME and will help out whenever you run into some problems making a delivery.

Bosses working up at the 'GOD'S Eye' can track your progress, but usually only contact you if special order/instructions are needed for your current or upcoming task.

The job pays very good and the hours are ridiculously flexible, but you must take "note" you are NOT an employee of Deliv in the traditional sense as a driver. You are an Independent Contractor which means your hours are yours to make, but you will not receive any benefits whatsoever or any other perks you might expect...

You will need to set aside money for "TAXES" keep records of gas you spend making delivers and/or the miles....
Pros
Hours and the pay is good for the work
Cons
Next to no benefits/Independent Contractor for Deliv

Nice and easy side job
Driver (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 9, 2017
Deliv is an easy side job to either compensate a current part time job or an extra income on top of a full time job. If you like to drive, deliv makes it easy to get to know your area and surrounding neighborhoods. It's like Uber or Lyft without having to drive people.
Pros
relaxed environment, flexible hours, easy to work with staff
Cons
no benefits

Courier/Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 6, 2017
Flexible work schedule and consistent. Professional environment and good to work with dispatchers that guide you to your destination. Wait time is low for orders and can always contact someone in case help is needed.

DELIVERY DRIVER - Driving (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 31, 2017
Working for Deliv is good for people who don't want to interact with a bsos and who really just want to work alone with virtually no supervision. It's not hard to get all your deliveries done as you're not overloaded with work.

You don't make much $$$
Driver (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaApril 28, 2017
Sent to a lot of high rises without parking,. Try to get a parking comp, carrying heavy items up to 23 rd floor and try to find the right company because the app only gives you the address. No tips
Service area is huge, so plan on spending a ton on gas and tolls.
Plan on sneaking into gated communities because no arrangement is made for your entry in most cases.
Again, don't expect tips. At least in my area.

Consider yourself LUCKY if you get 3-7 deliveries PER WEEK even if you made yourself available for 25-30 hours. Avg pay is 15.00 ea
And availble means you're on stand-by.

The support staff are really nice, helpful people. Great concept, but it has bugs that need to be worked out.
Pros
Listening to music as you drive
Cons
not worth the cost of doing the job
